We had dinner at Els Quatre Gats based on Rick Steves' recommendation. The restaurant has great ambience and the guitarist added to the atmosphere. The staff were pleasant but the service was very slow, even though the place was not full. We waited so long for our entrees and the food was ok but we've had much better meals at... More

Fun to visit. Good tapas. Great service. Very different style of patatas braves from the other places we went to. Front room for tapas and beautiful back area for lunch and dinner.

We visited the Casa Marti Els Quatre Gats mainly as a bucket list tick off due to its rich history, charming character and great atmosphere which it had. The down side was the extremely poor service of our sour-faced waitress who disappeared before we even completed our order. We didn't make a fuss or complain as we were only there... More

The cold wintry afternoon in Barcelona was cured by a visit to Els Quatre Gats with a Hot Chocolate with croissants (churros not available). The chocolate was marvelously unadulterated. The place oozed with warmth and comfort and a veritable feast for the eyes with artworks in every wall and corner adding more character to the place and not daunting. This... More

This place is the very definition of a tourist trap. I'm embarrassed to see it mentioned in the Daily Telegraph - clearly he's not from Barcelona! No Spaniard would ever go here, none in sight on my visit- only Americans, Japanese and idiots like me. It is cramped (could not get up from my seat without moving the table next... More

This was our third visit to the restaurant over a long period of time ( about 20 yrs) - the first visit was exquisite, the second was ok but not so good, the most recent (25th Feb) was quite awful. The ambience is superb and of course the place has amazing historic connections but they seem to have forgotten the... More

Interesting restaurant down a small alley near plaza catalunia and ramblas. Very historic with links to Picasso. A bit like the Tardis. much bigger inside with lovely decore. Extensive menu especiallt fish , tapas. Not excellent for veggies or those that are not keen on red meat. Mid range. Excellent service

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences.
